    I set 24 (chicken) eggs yesterday in my incubator [​IMG] , and I already can't wait for them to hatch! I set 10 EE eggs, 10 random brown eggs, and 4 white eggs. All are from my flock (see my page for breeds) all will have my EE roo Chipmunk or my BR roo Romeo for a father , I can't wait for them to hatch and I'm only on day 2! I don't want to see what I'm like on day 20!

    He he I set my first eggs ever this morning! I already feel the same way as you! I am attempting to hatch Muscovies. I only have 10 eggs in there and was hoping to buy some more from somebody with blue and Lavender Muscovies but he never got back to me( I only have white). Well he sent me an email today and said I could pick up a dozen eggs tomorrow. Its a real no no to do that right? I really shouldn't put more eggs in tomorrow should I?

    Candled yesterday one of the brown eggs I can kind of see threw I'm not seeing anything growing so it maybe infertile so I marked it and put it back will be watching it carefully, and the 4 whites are growing! I saw two of them move! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'm on day 16 now, when I got home from school and went to turn the eggs the temp. was at 107 turned the temp. down and opened it and turned the eggs now the temps. at 99.1, and I'm worried I killed them all [​IMG]

    I now have 14 chicks, and 4 pipped and one rocking [​IMG] , that leaves 5 not doing anything including one I had mark as not growing/infertile. But It means they did not all die in the temp spike!
